Space, the first rock sample taken on Mars. NASA: “Epochal result”

by admin

NASA has confirmed that its Perseverance rover managed to collect the first rock sample on Mars. “I’ve got it!” (I got it), tweeted the US space agency, posting a photo of the sample.

The sample was collected on September 1, but NASA was initially unsure whether the rover had successfully held the precious cargo because the initial low-light images were unclear.

After taking a new photo so mission control could verify its contents, Perseverance moved the tube inside the rover for further measurements and imaging, then hermetically sealed the container. “This is a momentous achievement and I can’t wait to see the incredible discoveries produced by Perseverance and our team,” NASA administrator Bill Nelson said in a statement.
